Circle of Protection
July 22, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us on Sunday afternoon July 22, rain or shine, for the Circle of Protection, an interfaith prayer vigil, co-produced by Friends of Buckingham County, Virginia and Water is Life. Protect It, to protect Buckingham County (and all of us!) from the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline and the proposed Union Hill ACP Compressor Station.
The Sunday, July 22 Circle of Protection is shaping up very very fine. With music by Emily Robey Morrison and the Yes Brothers, opening prayers by Reverends Ray McKenzie and Virginia Agee and by Interfaith leader, Kira Young, story by Caroline Bray of Virginia Student Environmental Coalition and more, we intend once again to lift up protection for the Union Hill community and for Buckingham County against the very real threats of the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline and the proposed Union Hill compressor station. Join us as we lift our spirits, inform our minds, and choose our right actions. With potluck and guest speaker to follow. 1-3 pm.
The vigils are open air on the grounds of Union Hill Baptist Church, 1496 Union Hill Road (State Route 663), Buckingham, VA 23921. Indoor pot luck and speaker following in the church basement. The Circle of Protection is a collaboration of Friends of Buckingham, Union Hill/Grove Baptist Church, Yogaville, VSEC and Water is life. Protect it.
See Circle of Protection for more directions and more details. (We advise printing out directions for the event before setting forth as reception can be vague to nonexistent in certain parts of the county.)
